Prince William honors Pete Tong with MBE title

Pete Tong is often hailed by the international dance music and radio communities as an immortal, if they’d ever seen one, or at least a legend in his own right. The long-time BBC Radio 1 figure is now being acknowledged, similarly, by the Duke of Cambridge. Honored for the storied career in broadcasting and music at Buckingham Palace, Prince William awarded Pete Tong the title of Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire — more simply known as MBE. On the milestone both not only for his career, but personal accomplishments, Pete Tong humbly reacted; “I’ve been standing here for a few hours waiting to do this and still have to pinch myself — I’ve spent my career doing something I love, playing records.”
